^^^you just get killed really early in games. I had a stretch where I didn't make it past night 3 I think for a couple of months.
you should totally read A GAME OF THRONES mafia as it was pure quality, and not only because I was part of the scum team that dominated.
Having to adapt in the game is always fun and the calculated risks you have to take. Like, for example, better players need to make sure they say their reads at the right time otherwise the scum team will just kill them off and ensure they can never push them, so faking a read to make them keep you around is always a fun tactic.
